EQT corp. commissioned a nationwide poll, conducted by Democratic polling firm Impact Research, that showed that large majorities of both political parties strongly favored building new natural gas pipeline infrastructure and increasing production after hearing about natural gas' benefits, a company press release announced on July 20.

The poll's subjects consisted of 1,057 registered voters conducted from June 2 to June 8, with a margin of error of +/-3 for the main sample plus an additional oversample of 578 Democrats with a +/-3.4 margin of error.

EQT is currently the largest natural gas producer in the U.S., primarily focused on the core of the Appalachian Basin.

"Americans are recognizing the tremendous impact natural gas can make in our efforts to provide the world with energy security, lower energy prices and inflation and address climate change," EQT president and CEO Toby Rice commented in the release. "These poll results demonstrate that Americans want more natural gas production and support the infrastructure needed to make it a reality."
